Make a holiday cottage in Banyalbufar your home away from home

Banyalbufar is a gorgeous little coastal community located in the foothills of the Serra de Tramuntana range, on the west coast of Majorca. Although the region was traditionally an agricultural area, it has slowly turned toward tourism; resulting in a holiday destination that couples old-world charm with contemporary Spanish hospitality. A Banyalbufar holiday cottage is consequently perfect if you’re looking for a quiet coastal getaway location, where you can really get in touch with Majorcan culture. The villas, apartments and holiday cottages in Banyalbulfar offered at HomeAway offer plenty of options for couples, families and party groups.

Things to do in Banyalbufar

Although Banyalbufar is a relatively small and remote community; it has a great deal to offer by way of sights and attractions. It is however, beneficial to have some form of private transport, as this allows you to make the most of your time in the region and visit some of the more out of the way locations.

-The beaches around Banyalbufar are not the sandy coastline that you might experience in other areas of Majorca, tending more toward cobbled foreshores and impressive cliffs. Beaches such as Cala Banyalbufar and Es Corral Fals, however, certainly match any of the islands other beaches by way of beauty. They also offer some great snorkeling and diving opportunities, in addition to being much more private than beaches in other regions.

-Hiking is a pastime that has grown in popularity on Majorca in recent years, owing to the stunning beauty and diversity of the island’s countryside. The region around Banyalbufar is no exception, and as such, numerous fantastic hiking trails can be found in close proximity to Banyalbufar holiday villas. One of the most popular of these tracks stretches roughly 7.3 kilometres along the coast from Banyalbufar to Port des Canonge and provides you with unmatched views of the beautiful turquoise ocean below.

-The Terraces situated in Banyalbufar are said to date back to approximately 902AD and were originally utilised to maximise the amount of usable ground for agriculture. Contemporarily however, they serve as breath-taking tourist attraction, and can be closely viewed from several different locations near your Banyalbufar holiday apartment, including a small trail which runs outward from the town centre.

-Wine tasting is a definite must on Majorca, as the island is home to a magnitude of different wineries, most of which are small family owned and run operations. The Son Vivese winery is one such establishment, which is conveniently located within walking distance of Banyalbufar and produces a variety of different red and white wines. Be aware however, that tastings and tours need to be organised at least one day in advance.

-The Tower of Es Verger or “Talaia de ses Ànimes” is without question one of the most visited tourist attraction on Majorca and is situated a mere 1.6 kilometres from your Banyalbufar. Perched precariously on the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean below, this stunning 16th century stone defensive structure offers amazing views of the Mediterranean and is said to be the most romantic place on the island to watch the sunset.

The weather in Banyalbufar

The best time to visit Banyalbufar is between May and September, as the region experiences warm, generally dry weather during this period. The winters in the area are however, relatively mild, meaning that a Banyalbufar holiday apartment can also make for a great escape from chilly northern European winters!

Getting to Banyalbufar

Banyalbufar is relatively simple to reach, as it is located only 27 kilometres from Majorca’s capital city Palma. You may choose to employ a taxi, hire car, shuttle bus or public bus in order to cover the distance between the airport and Banyalbufar, although a hire car is recommended, as you then have the opportunity to stop along the way and appreciate the amazing scenery.

                                                        Beautifully presented and fabulously equipped apartment!

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        From our arrival to our departure Maria was the perfect hostess. Maria's thoughtful welcoming bottle of wine, water, crackers and fresh fruit was a lovely touch and she was very helpful with advice about local buses, walks in the mountains and taxis. She was always on hand with a quick response with any queries I had. The apartment is beautifully presented and very well equipped with everything you could need to ensure you can cook a meal easily. It was spotlessly clean, light and airy and we never tired of the beautiful sea views through the 3 lounge/dining area windows. The beds were very comfortable and there was ample space for clothes, shoes and holiday bits and bobs without feeling at all cluttered. Banyalbufar is a very pretty village with a handful of bars and restaurants along with a few shops selling essentials...basically everything you need. It is very peaceful and we had a wonderful relaxing holiday. In addition to wandering around the cobbled streets of the village, there is easy access to the mountains to go walking and see some of the other pretty villages. If you are interested in cycling, this is a great base to cycle from. I would recommend this apartment wholeheartedly and we hope to return again soon. Thank you Maria for ensuring our stay was just perfect...Muchas gracias!

                                                        Well equipped apartment in a charming village

                                                        4 of 5
                                                        Banyalbufar has lovely sea views and is well located to explore western Mallorca. There are several good restaurants in easy walking distance, many with good sea views. The apartment is equipped to an above average standard, with a washing machine, large fridge with large freezer area, and a large kitchen/diner area. I have given it 4 stars instead of five because it was very warm while we were there and air conditioning in the bedroom would have been nice. In Spring or Autumn this would not be a problem. Also there is only a very small shop for food supplies, fine for essentials but if you want a wider choice you need to call into a larger town on your way there to stock up. The owner, Maria, is very welcoming and helpful.

                                                        Actually, the house is more beautiful than in the pictures. The views are breathtaking: especially the morning look at the sea and mountains at the same time! It was great to relax in the garden full of flowers and fruit trees. I won't name species, not to spoil the surprise :) Everything is in perfect condition, well and practically designed, so that you can just relax and don't have to worry about anything. The sourrounding is quiet, local citizens very friendly and open. There are a few small shops with local products and handcraft. On Thursdays, there is a market, where you can buy fresh fruits, vegetables, as well as local food specialties. Nearby, there is also a small vineyard Son Vives – thay also have their small shop in the town centre, where you can taste their wines (traditionally produced Malvasia, due to difficulties in cultivation of grapes on terraces). In Banyalbufar, there are numerous small cafes and restaurants, for instance, in the very middle of the town, there is a 1661 Restaurant, where you can taste local dishes, liqueurs from Mallorca and beer brewed in Tramuntana Mountains. They have run out of it short before our visit unfortunatelly, but we will catch up during our next visit :) On our way to the beach, we stepped in Can Paco and although we ordered cortados only, the really nice and talkative staff convinced us to stay longer next time :) There are two ways connecting the house with the natural, charming Cala Banyalbufar beach, both of them are perfect for a pleasant walk with picturesque views. On the way, you can encounter ripe, unbelievably sweet figs, as well as many other surprises. If you decide to walk toward Estellencs, you will reach another natural beach (2 km), also walking down a path with beautiful views. The path starts after you pass Torre del Verger. In the neighbouring area, the most impressive for us was the road down to (and back from) Valdemossa Port, which we won't forget soon, since it turned out to be more interesting than the way to Sa Calobra. Joan was a very nice and helpful host. Although we arrived at night, giving the keys to us was not a problem for him. He thought of everything while preparing the house for visitors and he welcomed us warmly. He also revailed to us that he's planning to make a swimming pool available in the next year :) I guess we will come back!
